For me its between Heather McKay and Don Bradman. Undefeated between 1963 and 1979

Consider the scores in the Finals of the British Open - Squash's world championship:

Winner 1962 9"6, 9"5, 9"4
Winner 1963 9"4, 9"2, 9"6
Winner 1964 9"2, 9"2, 9"1

Winner 1973 9"1, 9"0, 9"1
Winner 1974 9"2, 9"1, 9"2
Winner 1975 9"3, 9"1, 9"5
Winner 1976 9"2, 9"4, 9"2
Winner 1977 9"3, 9"1, 9"2

16 consecutive work titles without dropping a set once in the finals!

If you can be ...more

Simply the greatest of them all, along with the Don. The stats don't lie. I couldn't agree more with the comment that it's between Heather and the Don. It's not because I'm Australia, it's simply because, as I said, the stats don't lie. Statistical analyses have shown that even greats like Pele and Michael Jordan just don't come close. Of course, Walter Lindrum needs to be analyzed too.

Complete domination of Women's Squash, undefeated for 19 years at the highest level. Also a racquetball chammpion.

G.O.A.T. Bar none! That includes yanks.

How the hell did we forget PRE? The greatest athlete of all time never says the best performing a their sport in the title. To me it means the most inspirational. Pre was the greatest runner in America and I truely believe that not a single runner since has inspired a nation like he did. Not only runners were inspired by him, but an entire nation from football and basketball jocks to waitresses and rocket science nerds. No one since has touched a nation to the extremity that he did. It is unfortunate he died before Montreal. - themusicking101

He set every American record from the 2,000 to 10,000 meter runs. Lets see Michael Jordan even RUN 3 miles. -

Most interesting and inspirational person to ever live. Truly my biggest inspiration in sports history. Watch Without Limits and you'll see why. GO PRE

Best runner ever

Fantastic runner with a fearsome spirit and a brutal training program.

Czechoslovakian runner. His is the best runner of all timesHis style of running is an inspiration to all. He fought his way to the finish line, put his heart and soul into it. Plus the olympic triple in distance will probably never happen again.

235 Joseph Addai

Only rookie to get 1000+ yards (didn't even start the whole season) of the 06-07 season. And to top it off won a Super Bowl. Yeah reggie bush is amazing. But Addai is good.

Joseph Addai is a combination of Jim Brown and Walter Payton.

236 Frank Fredericks

Frank Fredericks is way too underrated. He is the coolest man ever!
